Imagine a little blonde girl doing this with the exact same seriousness and dedication as Napoleon. That's C. And it is ~*~glorious~*~.

Vote For Pedro

“Are they gonna dance?” “Who?” “At the election. Are they going to have a dance?” The majority of the conversations we have with C these days hearken back to her toddler years in that there is a good bit of deciphering we have to do on our grown-up end to figure out what she’s talking […]

Reacting to Reactions

Big news on the social media front, folks! In case you haven’t heard, yesterday Facebook introduced its highly anticipated Reactions. In a status update on his own page, Mark Zuckerberg described Reactions as “the new Like button with more ways to express yourself.” This is great news to me, at least, because I’ve always felt that the roughly 6,500 […]

5 Classic Disney Movies That Should Never Be Remade

So, there are many things I like about my life as a mom. These include having conversations with C about the glories of cheese; feeling a sense of personal accomplishment when she reaches milestones like potty training; and the fact that if I ever want to get out of anything, I can just say that […]

Stop everything and do this right now.

Step one: cue up “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure. Here’s the link to it on YouTube. Step two: watch the Swedish Chef dance the boogie. Happy Thursday, everyone.

It’s All In the Timing

I learn new things every day.  For instance, today I learned that we have not yet reached that point where we can laugh about that penny she accidentally swallowed last August.   Nope. Definitely not a thing to bring up jocularly while playing the Sheriff Callie matching game.  Duly noted.

Five Thanksgiving Foods Your Kids Will Talk About in Therapy

Ah, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving. That wonderful time of year when we gather ’round the table with family and friends to count our blessings and work for 12+ hours preparing a meal that will take 20 minutes tops to consume and whose leftovers will haunt us until Easter. I’m on the record talking dirt about […]

The One Simple Thing That Makes Three-Year-Olds Unhuman

I have had a long weekend. I mean, yeah, it’s Labor Day and all, so obviously I’ve had a long weekend. What I mean is that I would give my left arm for a nap right now. Since Friday, my work has been holding its biggest fundraiser of the year, a three-day music festival all over […]

Twenties Vs. Thirties

When I was in my twenties, I talked a lot about how I didn’t regret any of my past mistakes. Believing that it made me neat and unique to own up to my quirky foibles, I often waxed poetic about how, if given the chance to go back and do things over, I simply would not. I […]

Women Cast to Play Ghostbusters, Internet Loses Collective Mind

Let me tell you a little story about the Ghostbusters and me. When I was seven years old, my Aunt Jaye took me to see Ghostbusters II in the theater. Before the movie, we went to a fancy restaurant for dinner and ate hamburgers and fries and talked about all the kinds of things seven-year-old […]

Chores of the Childless

I have heard it said before that having a baby changes everything. I knew this was true when I found myself incredibly grateful to be able to sleep in until 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Pre-parent me would have died a little inside if someone had told her that there would come a day […]
